About The Shala School of Yoga

About The Shala School of Yoga

The Shala traces its roots to 1998 when Gingi Lee founded his first yoga studio in Battersea. Gingi was a yoga pioneer in London being among the first to set up a yoga studio in the city. The studio was dedicated to the practice of ashtanga yoga, an intense, life-asserting, meditative discipline cultivating strength, flexibility and stamina. 

The Shalas sister organisation The Shala School of Yoga, was set up in 2016 to offer training and courses for those looking for personal and professional development. The courses focus on the spiritual and philosophical aspects of this ancient practice, as much as the physical. With this broad foundation, our trainees are encouraged to create their own individual teaching path and find their authentic teaching voice. 

Our teacher training offers a broad range of specialist courses covering styles of yoga such as Yin, Nidra, Pregnancy and Restorative as well as courses focused on Pranayama, Breathwork, Mindfulness, Meditation, Sound & Ceremony, Asana, Yoga Philosophy, Yoga Anatomy and more.
